1. A library is a cornerstone of a community. It is where people expect to find not only answers, but others in search of the same answers. It is a central meeting place that is neutral in it's politics, religion, race, and persona. A library holds no grudge, nor does it turn away the ignorant, as they are the ones that usually seek out a library to no longer be ignorant. Without the knowledge contained and freely distributed by libraries, people will suffer. In the age of technology and the fast paced changes of the world surrounding us, libraries are even more necessary to help keep our community informed & up to date on not only our learning, but HOW to learn. The biggest blow to the progress of the community is the lack of progressive training to help keep our workforce in line with the work demands. Without the knowledge to do our jobs, we soon will have no jobs. And I think everyone in the region has seen the results of when that happens all around us.
    I am not saying the loss of the library will doom the city of Gary. What I am saying is that the city of Gary is at a point that we CANNOT take that chance.
